    Contact Microsoft for the .cab file format info.

    If the .cab file contains application executables/binaries for Windows CE/Windows Mobile or some other Windows version, then there are no converters to convert such binaries to Java or Symbian; you need to take the original source code and program architecture and functional specifications, etc., and start a porting/rewriting project.

    JAD/JAR can work on most of the windows mobile devices, if it has pre-installed JVM on it. In that case you just to build a .CAB installer for your J2me app that can install the j2me build on the device.
    Thanks,

    The only tool that does exactly what you want (to my knowledge) is alcheMo, but I think the cost might exceed your expectations...

    I am not aware of any free tool that will convert a MIDlet into a native Windows application.

    @Graham
    Sorry for repeating the info I gave before, but in this post I wanted to tell him that its FREE for download (which he was searching now)
    and I also wanted to tell him how to do the actual code conversion using it - the process.

    I will keep your advise in mind and just post addition info if needed and will not repeat any link as I did here by mistake.
    Thanks,
    Ekta
